The four weeks of Advent are like a journey where we bring our gifts, ask God for discernment, and are prepared and ready to worship Christ at his birth.
HCC is observing Advent; meaning ‘coming’ or ‘arrival.’ During this time, we prepare our hearts and minds to focus on our Lord Jesus Christ’s coming. In Advent we see a threefold coming of the Messiah:
1. A celebration of His first coming – born to Mary as her Son, Jesus.
2. Preparation for His second coming at the end of the world as judge.
3. Celebration of His coming into our hearts through rebirth.
All are welcome to come to our Friday Worship Services during Advent. This week, the Second Advent service will focus on the theme of Jesus our High Priest, as symbolized by the gift of frankincense the wise men brought to honor His birth.
